Dear Parent / Carer, Loughborough University are carrying out a project to find out about how children are learning about money. We are inviting parents and carers of children aged between 4 and 11 years old to complete a survey about children’s experiences of handling money. The survey can be completed on any device with an internet connection and can be accessed here:
Research shows that levels of financial literacy are lower in the UK than in many other comparable countries. This survey represents an important step in our work to develop better ways to support children’s learning about how to understand and manage money.
As a thank you, each participant who completes the survey will have the opportunity to enter a prize draw for one of three Amazon vouchers with a value of £100, £50 and £25.
The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and will help us a great deal in
understanding how children are learning about money and how they can be best supported in the future.
If you have any questions about the survey, please let us know.
Thank you for your support
